Irrelevant news from nature to loop quantum gravity

Today I read this article from BBC that LHC results put supersymmetry theory in trouble.

The results do not rigorously demonstrate anything because Strings can exist without low-energy supersymmetry of Loops with supersymmetry. I do not understand why the community of loop quantum gravitists are this much happy about it?! Its certainly bad news for preliminary string theory, but how about loop quantum gravity? Loop Quantum Gravity does not rely on superstring theory but it can certainly handle that. Loop quantum gravity certainly is an alternating theory, but there are many other candidates to seek for using the foundations of quantum mechanics.

But certainly this result is without doubt so important to be argued for a long time between experts.
